Regional differences in the cyclic variation of myocardial backscatter that parallel regional differences in contractile performance.

Abstract

Previous reports from our laboratory indicate that ultrasonic backscatter from myocardium exhibits a cyclic variation during the cardiac cycle that is reduced sharply by ischemia, a process which impairs both systolic contraction and diastolic relaxation. These results suggest that the cyclic variation of backscatter may be related to the cyclic variation… (More)
